Back to the Right Dinosaur

Sauropelta shows up in a few bits of literature that are available online; that is always very nice. One of these is dependent on one's ability to get Canadian Journal of Earth Science articles. However, if one does, it explains a nice skeletal and life reconstruction of Sauropelta that are both pretty well done and interesting. Additionally, there is another article that proves useful in reconstructing the world of Ankylosaurs in Utah. Three species are discussed in this review of the Cedar Mountain Formation. While an image of Sauropelta does not appear in this article, its description here puts to rest some of those more fantastical appearances we have seen (but I will leave it to the readers to discover this for themselves).
